About

Help United South End Settlements (USES) and the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) distribute over 200 bags of groceries to low-income senior community members!

What: GBFB's Commodity Supplemental Food Program

When: every third Wednesday of the month from 9:15AM - 12PM

The majority of program participants are Mandarin or Cantonese speakers. We need bilingual English and Mandarin or Cantonese speaking volunteers to translate. Volunteers will also support with unloading and distributing the bags of groceries which requires some heavylifting (35 lbs) and extended periods of standing.

Volunteers are also needed to make follow up calls on the two days after the distribution for the seniors who weren't able to make it the day-of.
